The EndDD.org presentation was taken to teens in Nevada this past week with a training session also for Nevada volunteer speakers who will continue to spread the effort throughout the state. Joel Feldman, founder of EndDD.org and father of Casey Feldman, who was killed by a distracted driver in 2009, spearheaded the effort, talking to students at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas and Wooster High School, I Can Do Anything Charter High School and Bishop Manogue High School in Reno.
“I am thrilled with the Nevada teens with whom I have spoken. They are engaged and seem to really want to drive safely. I am convinced that they will avoid many driving distractions and will also work to get their moms and dads to drive safer. Their generation will change our driving culture, just as our generation changed the culture regarding seat belt usage,” said Joel Feldman.
The Nevada Justice Association (NJA) has committed to extending the EndDD distracted driving message throughout Nevada and hosted a videotaped training session for it’s members in Las Vegas.
